Mary Tillman on ‘Today’: ‘Pat’s Death Was a Lie to the Country’
Posted on May 6, 2008
Mary Tillman made a sharp and moving appearance Tuesday morning on the “Today” show to talk about her new book, “Boots on the Ground by Dusk: My Tribute to Pat Tillman,” about the friendly-fire death of her son, Pat, and the U.S. military’s subsequent cover-up in 2004.
In an interview by Meredith Viera, Tillman called Pat’s killing “an act of gross negligence,” taking aim at the Pentagon’s top brass when she said “someone started this deception, and it didn’t start at the three-star level.”
